Spatial genetic analysis and long-term mark-recapture data demonstrate male-biased dispersal in a snake

Keogh, J Scott; Webb, Jonathon; Shine, Richard


Dispersal is an important life-history trait, but it is notoriously difficult to study. The most powerful approach is to attack the problem with multiple independent sources of data. We integrated information from a 14-year demographic study with molecular data from five polymorphic microsatellite loci to test the prediction of male-biased dispersal in a common elapid species from eastern Australia, the small-eyed snake Rhinoplocephalus nigrescens. These snakes have a polygynous mating system...[Show more]
